Posted by Dallas Allsopp Monday, March 14, 2022

Welcome to another edition of WOMEN'S WRESTLING WEEKLY—a rundown of the events which have transpired in the world of women's professional wrestling over the past several days not just with the Superstars on WWE programming, but with Impact Wrestling's Knockouts, ROH's Women of Honor, and even a glimpse at the women on the independent circuit.

WWE Monday Night Raw

Dana Brooke vs Tamina

Awful! I know the WWE 24/7 Championship has never meant a damn, but this truly is the worst of the worst for the so called title.

Winner: Dana Brooke

Rating: 1/5

Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley vs Carmella & Zelina Vega

Slow and plodding, this was just a mess to watch.

Winner: Liv Morgan & Rhea Ripley

Rating: 1.5/5

AEW Dark: Elevation

Ruby Soho vs Session Moth Martina

Squash City!

Winner: Ruby Soho

Rating: 2/5

Kris Statlander vs Emi Sakura

Squash City!

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2.5/5

WWE NXT 2.0: Roadblock

Wendy Choo & Dakota Kai vs Raquel Gonzalez & Cora Jade

A fine match between both teams, this was an example of how storylines and hard hitting action can be melded together to create something entertaining on NXT 2.0. Raquel Gonzalez looked great, but this match was all about how deadly Dakota Kai truly is.

Winner: Wendy Choo & Dakota Kai

Rating: 3/5

Kay Lee Ray & Io Shirai vs Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro

Once more, NXT 2.0 was the scene of solid women's wrestling that truly lived up to the legacy of Dusty Rhodes. I have to admit, Kay Lee Ray is slowly starting to endear herself to me in NXT 2.0 compared to her run in NXT UK.

Winner: Kay Lee Ray & Io Shirai

Rating: 3/5

Fallon Henley vs Tiffany Stratton

Terrible. But admittedly, both women have a hell of a long way to go if they want to end up on the main roster.

Winner: Fallon Henley

Rating: 1.5/5

AEW Dark

Anna Jay vs Marina Tucker

Squash City!

Winner: Anna Jay

Rating: 2/5

Red Velvet vs Kiera Hogan

Squash City!

Winner: Red Velvet

Rating: 2/5

Kris Statlander vs Kelsey Reagan

Squash City!

Winner: Kris Statlander

Rating: 2/5

AQA & Ruby Soho vs Diamante & Emi Sakura

A fun little sprint that showcased all four women well. AQA looked great, although the landing on the Shooting Star Press should have been safer.

Winner: AQA & Ruby Soho

Rating: 2.5/5

Nyla Rose vs Skye Blue

Squash City!

Winner: Nyla Rose

Rating: 2/5

AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite

Thunder Rosa vs Leyla Hirsch

Both women are standard bearers of AEW's women's division, once again rising to the challenge to put on a solid and enjoyable match. Facing Britt Baker next week for the AEW Women's World Championship proved to be a fabulous incentive, which will now provide Thunder Rosa a second shot at immortality, this time inside the confines of a steel cage!

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Rating: 3.5/5

Impact Wrestling

Chelsea Green, Mickie James, & The IInspiration vs Tasha Steelz, Savannah Evans, & The IInfluence

Standard multi-woman tag team fare. Not bad, but not great either.

Winner: Chelsea Green, Mickie James, & The IInspiration

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT UK

There were no women's matches this week.

WWE Friday Night SmackDown

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs Natalya & Shayna Baszler

This match suffered from a poor narrative, whilst the interference didn't help. Poor, all things considered.

Winner: Naomi & Sasha Banks

Rating: 2/5

WWE NXT Level Up

Ivy Nile vs Brooklyn Barlow

Squash City!

Winner: Ivy Nile

Rating: 2/5

AEW Rampage

Jamie Hayter vs Mercedes Martinez

Can we just stop showcasing Jamie Hayter, please? She was poor here, as she has been in about 95% of her matches.

Winner: Jamie Hayter

Rating: 1.5/5

MATCH OF THE WEEK:

Thunder Rosa vs Leyla Hirsch

Simply a fun and entertaining match.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK:

Thunder Rosa

Thunder Rosa once again showcased why she deserves a chance to become AEW Women's World Champion. Good luck in the steel cage match Rosa!
